thumbnail

MU Origin has enjoyed several major content updates in the 15 or so months since it first arrived, but this is the biggest one yet. That’s right – prepare yourselves for MU Origin 2.0. The centrepiece of this giant leap forward for the MU Origin franchise is Ragnarok.

Amazon may have just replaced the original Amazon Echo with two new models, but that doesn’t make the 1st gen version any less worthy of being in your home, especially when it can be had for ridiculously low prices.

Team 17’s post-apocalyptic survival sim Sheltered lands on Google Play

thumbnail

In a nutshell, Team 17’s Sheltered is This War of Mine but 30 years in the future. Or two years, depending on how the Trump thing pans out. The game has a very similar premise to 11bit’s harrowing survival sim, in that it sees you trying to survive day to day in an environment ravaged by war, but rather than some unnamed contemporary conflict the setting is a bunker following a nuclear holocaust. You have to scratch out a desperate existence, foraging for supplies and making weighty moral choices. Will ...
